RUNNING OF THE EVENT


Each race will consist of 2 free practice rounds, 3 or 4 qualifying rounds, semi-finals and finals.
Cars of different categories will run separately. The "Joker Lap" lap may be used in free practice. A Driver who has failed to complete at least one lap in free practice may be allowed to take part in the race by decision of the Stewards.
All Drivers in the next category are required to be present in the pre-grid to allow the Organizer to advance the Drivers needed to complete the various line-ups.
The use of any additional cooling device in the pre-grid area, other than the regular equipment of the car, will not be allowed.
If a Driver is unable to take part in his turn, he must inform the Competitor Relations Officer or Race Direction before the start of the first turn of his category. Failure to inform will be penalized as provided.

QUALIFICATION ROUNDS

Qualifying rounds with a maximum of 5 cars, line start, may be 4 (4Q) for 4 laps or 3 (3Q) for 5 laps.
Championship rounds consisting of a double round will always be on 3Q qualifying.

First Qualifying Round (Q1): the starting positions will be drawn by lot, in the presence of at least one Steward. If 2 or more Drivers retire during the first lap of Q1 they will be ranked according to the distance actually covered.
Second qualifying round (Q2): starting positions will be determined by the Q1 ranking. The slowest Drivers will participate in the first race (R1).
Third qualifying round (Q3): starting positions will be determined by the Q2 ranking. Slower Drivers will participate in the first race (R1).
Fourth qualifying round (Q4): starting positions will be determined by the Q3 ranking. The slowest Drivers will participate in the first race (R1).

The best qualified Driver will start from the starting place called "pole position" of the circuit, followed by the second, third, etc.
The starting grid of each race will be arranged according to the following scheme:

PARENTSR1R2R3R4R5

All qualifying rounds will be timed and the fastest Driver of each round will get 50 points, the second 45 points, the third 42 points, the fourth 40 points, the fifth 39 points, the sixth 38 points, the seventh 37 and so on.
In case of ex-aequo, the discriminate will be the best time/lap obtained during the Q.
Drivers who do not complete the round (DNF) will be awarded a score equivalent to the score that would have been awarded to the last Driver, minus one point, considering all starters in the race as classified.
Drivers who do not start in the qualifying round (DNS) and Drivers disqualified in the qualifying round (DSQ) will not be awarded any points.
After the qualifying rounds, there will be an intermediate ranking based on the total points of each Driver. In case of a tie in the intermediate ranking, the discriminating factor will be the number of first places obtained, second places, etc. during the Qs; in case of further ex-aequo, the ranking of the last Q will be valid as the discriminating factor.
To appear in the intermediate ranking, a Driver must have crossed the finish line and have been duly classified in at least two Qs.
In each qualifying round, one of the laps must compulsorily be the "Joker Lap" lap. Failure to run the "Joker Lap" lap will result in a 30" penalty. The penalty for running the "Joker Lap" lap more than once will be decided by the stewards. A de facto judge will be appointed to take note of the cars' passes. At the exit of the Joker Lap the cars on the main course have priority.
